The life of a boiler is 50 years, give or take 50 years. The biggest determinant of life expectancy is the longevity of the seal to prevent fresh water from entering to replace a leak, corroding the boiler.
Burnham took over American Standard boilers in 1970.
The greatest determinant of comfort and boiler control longevity is accurately sizing the boiler to the house. You can do a FREE heat estimate here:
All boilers are better than 84% AFUE now and all boilers you can get at a local plumbing/heating supply that the most plumbers recommend are good. It is a novice or untrained installer that can make a great boiler into a lemon.
You would probably want an upstairs and a downstairs zone, so your plumber should be able to handle that.
